Help a newbie.

Hi all I’m a newbie to the 10r and am loving it so far.

I’ve had 1000’s before so am not a novice when it comes to tuning etc. But I’ve just got my 04 that has a mss headers to akra can,pc3 and that’s about it. Now I’ve got it booked in at mss to have a custom set up and am wondering.

1- is a TRE worth fitting as I’ve read so many conflicting reports about this

2- is it with the hassle of removing the secondary butterlflies?

Again for the same reason.

Many thanks

P.s. loving the site so far

I put a TRE on my 1st Gen and didn't like it, so I removed it. But it's just personal preference. Not a hassle to remove the butterflies, just a little involved. There are some threads about it here on the site

Tre, if your going to get the bike dynoed, if you ride your bike mainly road and through spring and autumn i would leave the secondaries in, removing just gives a little uptop, but the biggest down side is cold starting, the secondaries are essential for auto choke. Those headers are custom pipe made locally by a fabricator for MSS, if its performance you want yes there better than stock headers.

Thanks for the input guys. I got it booed in a bsd for a custom set up on Friday.

I pulled the filter to clean it in prep for Friday and noticed the pair system has been blocked already and the secondary’s have already been removed.

michael4012 Would you know who as I’d like to find out about them? Was it mhp?

Thanks.

P.s. I’m loving this bike already and only had 2 decent rides so far. It’s mega.

BSD is one of the good ones just now, good choice. Your question, are you asking who the local manufacturer for MMS is?

Since you're using a PC3 and not a PC5, you'll want the TRE installed. Or find a place that uses a flash software and you wont need the PC3 or TRE.

Shut up and ride.

They are most definetely not arrow or Akro, they have been manufactured close to arrow speks but the materiel is different i had a set of those headers here for a while, there dimensions on the balance pipes are different sizes from Arrow (almost pointless) & the steel they use is a lower quality. I have asked a few people who it they use and to be honest it could be anybody its not hard to manufacture systems its the design thats hard but here they are almost copying a known design thats works well. I don't know why you need to know, there is a much better system used on that bike from the day (if your not restricted by stock rules) if its modifications then anybody can. Let us know what your hoping for, BSD have a good system man close to them as well.
